Living in Mexico – Easy Mini Vacations

With the recent economic downturn, many people from Canada and the U.S. have decided that living in Mexico is the affordable alternative to their native countries.

The added bonus of living in Mexico is the ability to take mini-vacation for under $200 for a duration of at least three days.  If you don’t own a car, you can either rent one with free mileage, or you can take a bus to your destination.  Many of the islands off of the coast of Mexico don’t accommodate cars and you must take a ferry to reach them.  Once on the islands, you can rent bicycles or take the bicycle taxis to get around.  Top cost $2.00 for your transportation, not including ferry.  If you have an INPAM card, your ferry ride is half the price.

Great Mini Vacation Destinations while Living in Mexico

If you are living in Mexico and not presently living on an island, then you’ll delight in what the islands have to offer.  Regardless of where you are living in Mexico, you can get to a body of water for tons of recreational activities.  One of the mini-vacation main events is from June through September at the Caribbean side of the Yucatan peninsula.

Visited annually by the largest sea creatures in the world, the whale shark, Mexican locals make the trip to welcome man’s friend of the sea.  Many boat tours are available to bring you face to face with this magnificent creature underwater.  The whale-shark is not carnivorous, so you are safe to swim with and enjoy their beauty in the clear waters off the shores of Mexico.  Fellow feeders are the manta ray, flying high in the air offering the eye a great treat of beauty and grace.  Most boat tours are 6 hours long and can cost up to $75 dollars.

Or, try to visit with your kayak to Rio Lagartos.  If you don’t have a kayak, you can rent one for $10 for the day!  Imagine a day of fun for only $10 in your Mexico mini-vacation!  That is a true bargain.

Living in Mexico – Mini Vacation to the Mayan Ruins

If you’re living in Mexico and water sports is not your thing, then get your sun hat and walking shoes to delight in visiting the ancient Mayan ruins, most of which are located in the Yucatan peninsula.

Most of the Mexico mini-vacations to the Mayan ruins can be accommodated by bus tour or you can drive yourself to the various locations.  Many of the outlying villages are places you won’t want to miss on your Mexico mini-vacation.  Whether you chose Chichzen Itza, Dzibilchaltun, Tulum or Ek Balem, you won’t be disappointed.  And, for a very special Mexico mini-vacation treat, you can visit any number of the famous Mexico cenotes, formerly used by Mayans as sacred places to worship and prayed for rain.  And, when you take your Mexico mini-vacation, you won’t want to miss the local flair of the villages around the resort towns.  It’s great to get out of the tourist area and travel a bit off the beaten track to see how the locals live and view their hand crafts or buy their fresh farmed goods at local markets.

Living in Mexico – Mexico Mini-Vacation Accommodations

If you are living in Mexico, you probably already know that the least expensive way to stay anywhere during your Mexico mini-vacation is to seek out bed & breakfast accommodations or hotels that are not charging seasonal rates.  You can find great deals with fabulous accommodations without spending over $50.00 per night.  If you call the hotels directly, you will get a better rate than if you use some of the noted hotel discount web sites.

Eating at local “cocina economica” (affordable food) can help your budget with meals costing no more than $10 per person.  When you plan your Mexico mini-vacation, don’t forget to bring along your cooler for a supply of cold water and other drinks that you prefer so you won’t have to buy at tourist locations.  Bags of ice can be purchased for $.12 cents to keep your beverages cold for the duration of your trip.
